Self portrait I

This is going to be the first attempt in a series of self portraits. I don't know what to expect from this journey of self discovery.

Woke up today in the mood to paint. I had an already primed canvas laying around. My daughter Maya is growing up so fast! I began with burnt umber layer from Golden acrylic paints.

Longer brush strokes for dress. Opaque titanium white mixed in. Various blues added in for dress. Emerging background will need further work. Until then, more work on foreground is needed. Certainly a good practice on executing free style acrylic portraits.
